Colombian DJ-producer and singer-songwriter KillaBeatMaker aka Hilder Brando Osorno gets the club people moving at the opening club of the Etnosoi! Festival. The Medellín-based artist combines Latin American rhythms and Colombian traditional music with club music. This energetic, charismatic performer also beatboxes, raps and sings during his DJ gigs. Along with his own tracks, he plays remixes and music from other producers.
His latest EP, Matiela Suto from early 2021, has been featured on Spotify playlists and BBC Radio 1 as well as media such as Pan African Music and OkayAfrica, gaining support from the likes of DJ Branko (Enchufada, Buraka som Sistema) and Kampire from the Nyege Nyege DJ collective.
Through his music, KillaBeatMaker talks in particular about the luxurious diversity of Colombian nature, and how it’s in danger of being destroyed and in need of protection. His art and everything he does is strongly imbued with respect for his own roots, the people of his homeland and its range of cultures.
Also appearing at the event is Angolan-Finnish rapper NaharY, whose music combines Afrobeats, bossa nova and other influences with Finnish hip-hop. The evening starts off with DJ Magic Sam. The event is co-produced with Funky Amigos and Siltanen.
Details about the schedule will be announced closer to the date, based on coronavirus restrictions. We recommend arriving in good time so that those who want to attend can fit into the venue.
